of things. The building is octagonal iu
shape, with a winding stair in the center
reaching the top where a platform is
built for the baud. The buildings is
about sixty feet iu height and a delight

country cau be had from the too.

have been erected ou the grounds for the
accomodation of all stock which will be
exhibited at auy time. Tcu additional
tUlls have been erected since the cpen
ias of the fair to cjpply the dermoid.
